UDC Technical Assistance Grant Applications Due by Sept. 2

NARROWSBURG – The Upper Delaware Council (UDC) announces the opening of its Fiscal Year 2012 Technical Assistance Grants (TAG) program. Applications from the UDC’s member municipalities must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, September 2.

A special meeting of the UDC’s Project Review Committee will be convened on Tuesday, September 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Council’s office in Narrowsburg to meet with applicants and review their proposals.

Approval of FY 2012 grant awards is expected at the Thursday, October 6, monthly UDC meeting to be held at 7:30 p.m. at the UDC office. Mid-term progress reports by successful grantees will be due by February 29, 2012. The deadline for municipalities to complete their projects and submit their documentation for reimbursement will be July 24, 2012.

Since the non-profit organization’s inception in 1988, the UDC has awarded $673,092 to help subsidize 194 non-construction projects. A funding pool of $16,700 has been budgeted for FY 2012.

The River Management Plan for the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River authorizes the UDC to provide technical, planning, and financial assistance to participating governments for projects related to implementation of the Plan.

Eligible to compete in the TAG program are the UDC’s eight New York town members, five Pennsylvania township members, and their encompassing counties. Buckingham and Manchester Townships in Wayne County, PA could also apply if they joined the Council.

Application forms, grant criteria, contract guidelines, and a directory of past projects are posted on the UDC’s website at www.upperdelawarecouncil.org and available for download.
